Most Evil: Perverted Serial Killers
Perversion is a concept describing those types of human behavior that deviate from that which is understood to be orthodox or normal. Although it can refer to a variety of forms of deviation, it is most often used to describe sexual behaviors that are considered particularly abnormal, repulsive or obsessive. Perversion differs from deviant behavior, in that the latter covers areas of behaviour (such as petty crime) for which “perversion” would be too strong a term. It is often considered derogatory and in psychological literature the term paraphilia has been used as a replacement, though this term is controversial, and “deviation” is now used instead by others.

David Parker Ray-Zakre (November 6, 1939 — May 28, 2002) was a suspected American serial killer and known torturer of women. Though no bodies were found, he was accused by his accomplices of killing several people and suspected by police to have murdered as many as sixty people from Arizona and Albuquerque, New Mexico area, while living in the town of Truth or Consequences, New Mexico, though none of his victims came from there. He has been given the moniker “Toy-Box Killer”. Neglected as a child, in his teenage years Ray became dependent on alcohol and illicit drugs. In later life, he built his “toy box”, a converted mobile home that he had soundproofed and equipped with items used for torture.
